A warm welcome to the website of Ayrshire & Wigtownshire CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale.  Geographically, our branch is located in South West Scotland and  covers an area of approximately 1600 square miles (4185 km²)

We have almost 600 members who are passionate about pub-going and real ale while having fun at the same time.  We are a very active branch with regular social activities and a successful festival which is held in early October each year.  In addition, we publish a multi-award winning branch magazine called Full Pints with issues printed and distributed quarterly. 

Please have a look around our website or better still come and join us in a pub for a beer or two.

Clubs Wanted

Are you a member of a club?

Does your club offer cask beer?

There are many clubs in our branch area. Golf, bowling, social clubs, etc., have bars offering members various drinks. As far as we are aware, only a handful sell cask ale. As a branch, we would like to see this small number increase. If you feel your club could stock real ale, please get in touch with Ian Martin, our Clubs Campaigns Coordinator, by emailing
